Dreamcatchers for Abused Children
October 4, 2013

Dreamcatchers has consistently posted very important information which is helpful for educating and informing the public on the horrific nature of child abuse.

I have watched this nonprofit expland to include radio talk shows.

There have been donations made to children in the form of Easter baskets and school backpacks.

A very worthwhile cause with very fine people at the helm. I am not sure there is any comparible to Dreamcatchers...

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Dreamcatchers would be worldwide... More information aimed towards perpetrators looking for help.

Dreamcatchers for Abused Children
April 26, 2011

I presently volunteer for Dream Catchers for Abused Children. It is an on line site and I work for it from my face book site. I usually recruit people so that they might join the cause. I also search on line newspapers in order to forward to Dream Catchers any articles on abused children, dead children, raped children or missing children. These articles are them posted in order to educate people on what is happening to children as far as such abuses would cover.

People need to be aware of the fact that children are being sexually abused in stores such as the Salvation army store or the Walmart store. People need to be aware of the fact that a child walked to school and never made it, instead being found three days latter raped and murdered. People need to be aware that parents, doctors, teachers and all others from all walks of life are known to abuse and murder a child.

I find that in helping Dream Catchers for Abused Children I help myself. I have a passion which now occupies my time and I am helping others. In recruiting I have found friends which I would not have otherwise known. My feeling about myself have improved since I belong with an organization that is helping in an area I believe needs to be helping in.

The organization is limited to what they actually can do because of funding. It depends on donations and grants. I would like to see a structured home base. I would like to see it grow to include locations all over the world. Maybe one day a shelter will be built where children could be placed in emergencies. I also would like to see more work being done to revamp bills and laws that do not help the abused child.

I have seen people go and I have seen people come. My hope is that abuse of a child does not become secondary to other causes which I fear. I mean docotrs, lawyers, police pentagon officials are being charged with abusing children. Causes such as Save the Leopards are recruiting more people than our casue for abused children. How many people are still turning their heads when they learn a child has been abused. We need to have dedicated individuals in our cause. We need to work hard in order to stop or even cap abused towards the child.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I see how many people are being recruited. My deep hope is that in posting any information on line, that maybe an abuser is caught if he has been on the run. Or maybe a child will come forward and report that he is being abused and a mother will take notice. Maybe abusers will know that we are on to them and they better get out fast. Maybe abuse would become acceptable.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Make it a solid foundation not just on line. Give it a building. Have a shelter available. Work on laws and bills. Work towards changing CPS. Expand to cover the world.
